Equatorial coordinates (epoch J2000):
Visual magnitude: 7,0m
Optimum magnification for a telescope with observations of M50, depending on the aperture of the telescope (D), is about D/4-D/2. Higher magnifications of course add details, but lead to a strong drop in the brightness of the image, making it difficult to observe.
